Imre, this isn't OK.

Maxime followed scenario used by other targets, but we refuse to apply
it, because there may be a better way. A way that no one implemented
and that no one described.

By ignoring patches for months we will only make ppl turn around
instead of getting more contributors.

Please *describe* how UBI options should be handled differently or
*accept* patches as they are and re-design that UBI thing later.
